A Word from Adam

Dear Friends,

 

Online School is underway, club kick-offs are happening, and the ministry continues all over our county!  Over the past few months I have highlighted the different ways we’ve been able to reach kids during this pandemic.  Today I want to share Esmeralda’s story.

Esmeralda’s story is not an uncommon one in our Transitional Living program.  She grew up under difficult circumstances with both parents in prison.  She was heading down a destructive path, but because of a friend and mentor she was encouraged to join the YFC program.  Although there is more to her story as there is with every student we get to do life with, she had this to say:

“I've learned that there are genuinely good people in the world who care for you.  Simply you.  Because of this experience I truly am inspired to be a servant leader and be a better giver... I was able to strengthen my relationship with [God] and learn how to work through a Bible on my own.  I met great people with all different kinds of backgrounds and had the chance to be open and trust people again.”

Thanks for caring and sharing!
